    Exclamation Which SSD should I buy to upgrade my 13" late 2008 Macbook Aluminum?
    My 2008 macbook is still in grate shape and I just upgrade the ram from 2GB to 4G and now I am thinking about upgrade the HD from 5400rpm drive to SSD!
    Do you guys think the SSD will speed up my macbook?
    Any recommendation on whichSSD to buy? I don't need big storage, currently there are 80GB of data on my hard drive with a lot of unused software and data in it.

    Thank You

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Yes without a doubt it will speed up everything!

    Extremely satisfied with my Mercury Extreme SSD from OWC. As a suggestion go with the SATA II model and not SATA III, and do a clean install rather than cloning your existi9ng drive.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Specs:
    13.3 MBP (2009) 6GB DDR3 1066 , 500GB Seagate Momentus XT (Hybrid SSD-HD)
    Just recently ( As of yesterday ) upgraded my MBP mid 2009 from 2GB to 6GB. As well as 160GB to a 500GB SSD/HD Hybrid ( Seagate Momentus XT ).

    I got all this from OWC and it turns out that doing a fresh install is alot easier. Good luck!

    I found a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid - does that mean, it's a SSD? Seagate 500GB Hybrid ST95005620AS | På lager | Billig
    15,4" MacBook Pro | 2,4GHz | 4GB | 320GB | NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M [256MB]
    iPod touch 4 | 8GB | 2011
    iPod touch 3g | 8GB | 2010
